Implementing Bike to Work Day cannot be done without the help and support of our volunteers! Scroll down and check out the lineup for this year’s Bike to Work Day and fill out the Volunteer Form below.
There are a variety of important activities leading up to Bike To Work Day. Some involve stuffing envelopes, filling the canvas bags that we give out on Bike to Work Day, and performing pre-event bike counts at proposed Energizer Station locations. Other activities include creating fliers and materials for the event. See below for more details.
Following is a list of volunteer opportunities leading up to Bike To Work Day:
When: Saturday, May 4, 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM, Sports Basement, Sunnyvale. Click here for more information.
Every year we hand out canvas, reusable bags at our Energizer Stations to people who ride their bikes on Bike to Work Day. We include a variety of items in these bags, from energy bars to information about safe riding and our Bike Away From Work Bash that evening. That’s great, except there are nearly 6,000 of them across the county to stuff.
We need a team to conduct outreach in their own communities to distribute posters for Bike to Work Day in local grocery stores, coffee shops, bike shops, libraries and other places with bulletin boards.

Bike to Work Day Energizer Station Activities
Following are volunteer opportunities associated with the Energizer Stations on Bike To Work Day morning:
Energizer Stations are one of the most essential and visible components of Bike to Work Day. This is where volunteers provide snacks, goodies, and encouragement to passing cyclists on their way to work. We always have lead volunteers who need an extra hand to help them setup, giveaway goodies, and count the passing bicyclists. We expect to have nearly 100 Energizer Stations throughout Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties.
Please complete the volunteer form below if you would like to help out with this rewarding and exciting activity. In the comments section, please indicate the cities where you would be most interested in volunteering.
We need a person to shoot footage of this event so that we can slice a video together later and use it for next year.

Bike Away from Work Bash Activities
Following are some volunteer opportunities associated with the Bike Away from Work Bash:
We’ll need some extra hands to help set up chairs and tables, hang up signs and banners, set up bike parking, and help out with various other activities as they come up.
Somebody to stand outside the party, congratulate and wave people into the party.
We provide bike parking for our party goers, and we’re looking for some volunteers to watch the bikes. Shifts range from 30-60 minutes, so that everybody has time to enjoy the party.
Volunteers help members check in to the party. Training will be provided for this role, so if you’re quick, detail-oriented, and have a little bit of time to spare, you can help us out with the check in process. Shifts are an hour, but you’re right there in the party.
We need some hardy volunteers to help pack up supplies, take apart the bike racks and make the venue look as good as when we arrived.
